JAMES Bond needs a hair transplant, according our surgeon Asim Shahmalak, who is Britain’s leading
hair loss expert.
Even the world’s hunkiest secret agent isn’t immune from the trials of
male pattern baldness.
Dr Shahmalak voiced his concerns over
007’s receding temples – revealed in pictures you can see in this link here:
‘Like Sean Connery before him, Daniel Craig’s Bond is receding
slightly around his temples,’ said Dr Shahmalak.
‘It’s obviously a very physical role, and Craig bulks up considerably
to play Bond. It’s possible dramatic changes in diet, exercise and his
body’s muscle mass will have a knock-on affect on his testosterone
levels, and thus his hair.
‘But Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Dalton were also all
slightly receding on the temples when they played James Bond, so maybe
it’s something the producers look for?
‘I’m sure Daniel Craig doesn’t want to lose all his hair like Connery,
so he should seek professional advice.
‘I think he would benefit from 1,500 to 2,000 individual follicle
grafts from the back of his head where his hair is still thick and
resilient. That would bulk out his temples nicely.’
Male pattern baldness (MPB), the main cause of hair loss, affects an
estimated quarter of men by the age of 30 and two thirds by the age of
60 so Bond’s not alone.
At 45, Craig is relatively high-risk for hair loss from MPB, the main
cause of men seeking treatment from Dr
Sir Sean Connery is now totally bald on the top of his head, and wears
his hair short.
According to Dr Shahmalak, Craig would need individual follicle
replacement therapy FUE, where each follicle is extracted before being
re-planted where it is needed.
This treatment leaves minimal scarring, vital because Craig wears his
hair short for many roles.
